    Don't waste your money!

    The author babbles, constantly repeats himself, is always off on a tangent, and never gets to the point. There may be tidbits of good information here somewhere, but I couldn't find them.

    Not that good

    With so many good books, why buy this one? Hupalo makes a nice effort, but this books is way too basic to be taken seriously. Recommend Inc. Yourself, Inc. For Dummies, How To Launch a Business and Incorporate in Any State by J.W. Dicks, S-Corporations by Robert Cooke instead.

    Not too impressed

    Very basic. Poorly written. Rough copy. Way too expensive for the quality of the book. Not recommended.
